Mike and Ikes. Do you know which is which?
Mike and Ikes. Do you know which is which? - 

This final note to chew on today. Mike and Ike are splitting up. The maker of the eponymous fruity chewy candy has a new ad campaign coming. They're going separate the Mikes from the Ikes and sell 'em that way.

But which one is which? We called Brian Revell. He runs a Mike and Ike's store at the Mall of America in Minnesota -- they sell Peeps there, too, by the way -- and asked him if anyone there knew.

Brian Revell: We don't, actually. They definitely like their secret private lives, they would never share their identities. So it's definitely ambiguous for a reason. So no, nobody knows their identities.

It's candy, you guys.

Candy.
